Get a Mac ads in Japanese


Apple has rolled out Japanese versions of the "Get A Mac" campaign. While you might expect these ads to be nothing more than the plain old English ads with a Japanese language overdub, the commercials are entirely in Japanese and use Japanese actors. Perhaps Justin Long (may he rest in peace) and John Hodgman just weren't otaku enough for the Japanese market.

There appear to be three ads available right now, "iLife," "Viruses" and I can't quite determine the third one. You can see the ads on Apple.com/jp. If any of our Japanese-speaking readers would like to compare the dialog in these ads to their English brethren, drop us a tip!

I wonder if Apple plans any other localized versions of these ads?
